‘The Diamond’ wins his Pro Card

In a truly mind-blowing display of talent Lusindiso ‘The Diamond’ Danster became the youngest ever Physical Culture Association (PCA) Bodybuilding Pro when he won the Overall title at the sixth edition of the Battle of the Titans in Cape Town.

Lusindiso’s condition was impeccable in an exhilarating show with a high standard of athletes. The youngster from the Eastern Cape is well on his way to bodybuilding stardom if he keeps improving like he is show by show.

Other local athletes who received their Pro Cards were Didi Yuan (Toned Bikini) Jenine van der Merwe (Trained Bikini), Bianca Koekemoer (Trained Bikini), Nkululeko ‘The Marvel’ Cele (Senior Men) and Siyanda Sibango (Men’s Physique).

They have all been invited to represent South Africa at the PCA World Championships in October.

The sensational Kerry Sexton won the Bikini Pro Class in what was her first international victory of the year outside of the United Kingdom. The popular two-day competition hosted at the Durbanville High School comprised of PCA Pro divisions (Bikini and Bodybuilding) for the first time on local soil along with the standard amateur categories.
